International Agency for Economic Development
Dr. Larry T. Gell, Director-General & Founder
A non-profit charitable organization seeking funding for in-country economic development projects for LDCs and DCs
What is the IAED?
IAED partners with other non-profits/non-governmental organizations, corporations, universities, UN Organizations, and private individuals in conducting our country projects worldwide.
IAED projects are targeted to a country’s need to solve problems that would speed up economic and social development of their own countries. Projects are based on Dr. Gell’s 50+ years of successful international consulting experience solving problems for leaders worldwide in countries and the world’s largest corporations.
Dr. Larry Gell founded and funded 100% of IAED since 1990. As of 2017, we received our 501(c)(3) IRS tax exempt status to allow other like-minded funders to contribute and share in the joy of accomplishment with us, worldwide.

IAED and the LDC’s and DC’s
IAED is focusing on helping the Least Developed Countries (LDC’s) and also the Developing Countries (DC’s) of the world.
The UN, in 1970, identified 24 LDC’s and pledged to reduce them to 12 by 1980. As of 2017 they increased them to 48. As of 2018 they moved Costa Rica off the LDC list and into the DC Developing Country status. This may sound good, but it can and usually is a disaster in the early stages of development as the former LDC’s move from the many financial benefits of LDC status to being saddled with immediate debt and new expenses that come with its new DC status. The simple analogy would be people who were on welfare receiving many benefits, to being move off welfare to Workfare with the resulting immediate debt and rising costs to exist.
LDC’s need help as do most DC’s. IAED is willing to work with them and help them develop both economically and socially at NO COST TO THEM from IAED. IAED brings 50+ years of experience from Dr. Gell alone plus other IAED Advisors to help these countries.
These two examples highlight the wide range of successful projects IAED has designed and implemented:
︎▶︎ Ghana, 1994 – Africa’s First International Conference on Science & Technology: To speed up the Economic and Social Development of a Least Developed Country
︎▶︎ Iran, 1999 – Iran’s First International Conference on Aging and the Elderly
